From ancient conjurers to quick-handed con artists to big ticket Las Vegas illusionists, magicians throughout the ages have been expertly manipulating human attention and perception to dazzle and delight us (or scare us, or steal our watches). Of course you know that the phenomena of cognitive and sensory illusions are responsible for the “magic” of a magic trick, but you’ve got to admit it still kind of freaks you out when some guy in a top hat defies the laws of nature right in front of your eyes.

Come meet our dynamic trio: neuroscientist Luigi Anzivino, physicist Zeke Kossover and magician Robert Strong as they team up to demonstrate how magicians use your brain and physics as their accomplice in effecting the impossible — and to explain what scientists can learn about the brain by studying the methods and techniques of magic.
